Partially it’s because this vacation is always about being away from electronic devices — no computer, cell phones barely work — partially it’s because I also have a deplorable print TBR that really needs work. We travel by car, so space isn’t such an issue, and then I leave the books there for other people — it always pleases me in an odd way to go with less than I came with.

I spend the entire week on the beach reading. I downloaded 2 or 3 books on my Kindle. I have 6 or 8 audio books on my I-Touch and I went to the used book store and got 8 or 10 short Harlequin books for some variety. My family knows to let me read all day on the beach. I do not want to go shopping etc. Let me read.

We decided to go tent camping in the Appalachians this year, which is going to be a completely new experience for me. I wouldn’t worry but my Kindle battery doesn’t hold a charge for very long anymore (couple of days) and we won’t really be near anywhere I can recharge. So I’m using it for as long as it lasts as well as two print books just in case.

I loved going into a different library to check out books and it meant a lot fewer books to pack.

xina: At my cabin, I am all alone with my dogs. Heaven….and much reading time.

I envy you there, xina. Yes, if I had someplace like that to be able to go to occasionally, books would definitely be part of the baggage. But then that’s an entirely different get-away than one where you are on the go most of the time. On trips, I found my focus to be too vulnerable for reading, so I began taking books that didn’t require much of a one—more of a quickie read. And then I thought, I wouldn’t read those at home, why bother with them on the road. They were so forgettable and usually “dumb.” So I quit bothering and began to enjoy the time away differently than when I’m home. I can always read when I return.

Tee: Once more out of the loop, but I don’t pack books anymore when I go on vacation. I find I usually don’t have the time to read. We go to different locations and I’m all into the new stuff. When I used to bring the books, they would go back home with me unread. Since then, I’ve learned my lesson. No books while I’m away enjoying the new sights.

I agree with you Tee. When I go somewhere (other than my cabin) I rarely have time to read. Unless I am on a beach or on a cruise, I am out and about. At my cabin, I am all alone with my dogs. Heaven….and much reading time.

I seem to have a fanatical fear of being left without something to read. Part to that fear comes from the fact that I never know what type of book I’ll be in the mood for next. At home that’s not a problem, because I can pick from my print TBR, my kindle, or the local library. On vacation, I take a little of “everything” to avoid being caught craving a humorous contemporary instead of the romantic suspense I packed. I take my kindle and paper books. I don’t take my kindle to the beach, and probably not to the pool unless I’m not swimming. (I don’t want to leave it poolside while I swim.) So paper books are a must for our beach vacations.
